5 vicious Chokeslams ever delivered in WWE
Five deadliest chokeslams in WWE
The chokeslam is a move in professional wrestling that has been in practice for a long time. This move is deadly and career-threatening as it grasps the air out of the wrestler on whom it is performed. It basically chokes the windpipe and causes breathing hindrances and most wrestlers fail to beat the three count of the referee once it is delivered.
Generally, wrestlers who deliver this brutal slam, are taller than 6'5". This makes it easier to grab the throat of taller opponents. Choke-slam also requires muscular and strong shoulders to lift the opponent as high above the ground as possible for maximum impact.
Following is a list of five such savage choke-slams ever delivered in WWE.
#5 Kane to Chris Jericho
On October 7, 2002, in an episode on Monday night RAW, 'The Big Red Machine' was forced to defend the Tag Team Championships alone, as his partner Hurricane was attacked previously by Ric Flair and Triple H. It was a TLC match which was the first of its type in RAW.
He had to defend it against the teams of Rob Van Dam and Jeff Hardy, Bubba Ray and Spike Dudley and also Chris Jericho and Christian. Towards the end of the match, Kane chokeslammed Jericho from the top of a ladder, which was at least 8 feet above the ground. The chokeslam was a very crucial and ferocious as Kane not only had to compete against six other wrestlers but also successfully defended his title by defeating all of them. After the chokeslam, Jericho could not move and Kane climbed the ladder to retain his championship.
